Part 15 contains `extraction' test methods for alternative fat tests with volatile media iso-octane and
95% ethanol, as specified in European Commission Directive 97/48/EC.
Parts 14 and 15 were not included in the European Commission/EFTA mandate, as they were added
to the Work Programme after the mandate was awarded in 1994.
The detailed titles of the fifteen Parts of EN 1186 are given below in Table 1:

Part 14 Test methods for 'substitute tests' for overall migration from plastics intended to
come into contact with fatty foodstuffs using test media iso-octane and 95% ethanol
Part 15 Alternative test methods to migration into fatty food simulants by rapid extraction
into iso-octane and 95% ethanol
NOTE: Part 1 has been extensively revised to take account of the changes to testing protocols made in
European Commission Directive 97/48/EC - the second amendment to Council Directive 82/711/EEC
laying down the basic rules necessary for testing migration of constituents of plastic materials and
articles intended to come into contact with foodstuffs
, and to include new sections with advice on
`problems' identified in use of the test methods in the ENV standard.
